What if Juliet doesn’t kill herself?

Juliet: A Revenge Comedy is an award-winning, fast-paced, action-adventure comedy that follows Juliet on the literary adventure of a lifetime!

Stuck in an endless loop of turning a dagger on herself, Juliet (played by Pippa Mackie) tears herself from the fabric of her tragedy in search of a reason for her untimely demise. On the way, Juliet recruits a team of the Bard’s most famous female characters (all played by Jessie Award-winner Carly Pokoradi) to find out why they’ve been forced to die! Together, they embark on an uproarious adventure through the canon, pursued by Shakespeare himself (played by Ryan Gladstone). Can they alter their fate, or are they doomed to play out the same tragic tales for the rest of eternity?

The Draw

Join the adventure and see for yourself why this show has earned 5-star reviews across Canada, 6 Jessie Award nominations, and a Jessie Award for Best Performance (Carly Pokoradi) and why the Toronto Guardian calls this brilliant comedy: “A must see!”
